Prince George accountant running for city council

‘I am running because I am incredibly excited about our city’s potential’

Local professional accountant Karen Muir has announced her intention to run for Prince George city council this fall.

Muir is a single mom with two daughters. She's a UNBC graduate and a controller in the forest industry.

For over a decade, she has been a dedicated volunteer in the Prince George community, including her current role as treasurer with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern B.C.

“I am running because I am incredibly excited about our city’s potential,” said Muir. “We need creative, collaborative solutions to solve the challenges facing Prince George and realize our amazing future.”

Muir will be out in the community in the coming weeks — knocking on doors and attending local events. She encourages Prince George citizens to share their concerns, ideas, and goals with her.

“As your councillor, I have the skills and qualifications from my personal, professional, and volunteer experiences to be an effective voice at the council table, and champion for you and for Prince George,” added Muir. “A vital part of effective leadership is listening, and I want to know what’s on your mind this election.”

Voters hit the polls on Oct. 15.
